Hello, weary traveler, your journey’s almost over It’s time to do it all again Every iteration sounds the same as you grow older And no one else is listening But it gets harder to let go When it’s the only thing you know Hello, aimless wanderer, the end is growing nearer And you don’t even seem to care You don’t have any answers, but the questions become clearer When no one is around to hear It’s getting harder to hold on You had a reason, but it’s gone Goodbye, strange philosopher, may you complete your journey Maybe it’ll lead you home
Spinning ‘round the universe in search of finding somewhere you belong But you’re so small and weak you move in place or don’t move anywhere at all Run around in circles as you please You’ve reached the end, now it’s gonna repeat Are you still contagious? Are you still in some outrageous state of mind? Walking through the darkness, all you had to do was open up your eyes You’ll never have the answers that you seek You’ll never figure out what it don’t mean You’re just looking at the sky through the trees I laid down on the ground and went to sleep And had the very most peculiar dream The corpses stretched from sea to shining sea And all of the destruction came from me And centuries and centuries abound Each moment undisturbed by wretched sound Nor dust, nor chaos, nor philosophy Alas, that’s not how things turned out to be You wake up feeling rotten, you’ve forgotten all the beauty that you saw You wait for time to pass, and time will pass until there isn’t time at all It ends the same as any other day, and I’m afraid I might know why Even though you think you don’t you know, already, how it feels to die You’re looking hard, but you won’t ever see No truth you find will ever set you free You’re just looking at the sky through the trees You’re still looking at the sky through the trees
